A plot of Port Authority-owned land near the Holland Tunnel got a $200,000 makeover courtesy the Hudson Square Connection, and it's ready to make its debut. The 15,000-square-foot space, called Freeman Plaza West, is the city's newest street plaza, with 17 new trees and moveable tables and chairs. The creators want it to be a "refuge" for the neighborhood in the traffic-choked area. This is just the first piece of a five-year, $27 million plan to greenify Hudson Square's streets.
